More than 100 fables from the most famous storyteller of all times Aesop's Fables, the globally read phenomenon, originated from a man who lived long ago, a storyteller, actually. His name was none other than Aesop; his last name though, no one really knows. Aesop was a slave in ancient Greece who told his stories between 620 and 564 BCE which is when he's believed to have lived. Since those ancient times, many of his stories have been told and retold. It is sometimes hard to tell which is the original of so many of his stories, as they have been passed down orally, written from book to book, and told from generation to generation. So obviously, the stories have changed a lot over the years. His stories have spread so widely all through the years that there are different translations for all the stories; from Latin, to Greek, English and even some Asian languages. Each culture may have a different storyline or a different moral lesson, but at the end of the day, we are all learning the same thing under the great Aesop. There are so many fables out there wrongly accredited to Aesop, regardless of the fact that some of the stories came before his existence and even after his death. Some of them will be told at the end of this book. The general error that people have made is that anywhere a children's story has mythical creatures or animals with morals at the end, we automatically assume it is a work of Aesop. Initially, the fables were supposed to be for adults and not children (that is the reason why most of the fables, if looked up today in their original versions and not a children's translation, will be written in a complex and difficult to understand English rather than a generally understandable one). The moral lessons given at the end of the stories usually give political, social and independent living advice, which sometimes doesn't apply to children. But over the years, different authors have come at different points in time and have attempted to translate Aesop's works into children's books because after all, the stories are already full of animals and different creatures, which are appealing enough to the children crowd. Some of the stories in this book have characters that are human, some others are animals, there are also mythical beings such as satyrs (a faun, a Roman mythological creature of with pointed ears, legs, and the short horns of a goat and a fondness for unrestrained revelry), trees, flowers, plants, gods and goddesses, forces of nature, plain objects and even Aesop himself. Target audience of the book This book was written with the intention of reaching out to children between the ages of 2-10 years, or even older. It can be read to children as bedtime stories, so that the morals can be learned as they dream, or it could also be read in class to younger kids by their teachers during story time. This way, children can easily ask questions and have their teachers explain the stories to them. It is very possible for adults, as well, to benefit from this book; it is a book that speaks to everyone of every age. The moral lessons in this book are elaborate enough for both children and adults to understand perfectly well. The confusing words and phrases that children might not understand should be explained by the parents, guardians or teachers. Some of the moral lessons also consist of proverbs and witty sayings to reinforce the point that the author is trying to make. These parts of the book need to be explained to younger children, as they might not understand what they mean. Reading and understanding this book will help children to make better life choices in the future because of the moral lessons given after each story. It will sharpen their minds and improve their memories, not just academically, but also out in society in general.

Containing the best of Aesop's fables, this text presents a variety of entertaining stories with thought-provoking morals – alongside Rackham's beautifully imaginative and humourous illustrations. Aesop was a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with Aesop's name have descended to modern times through a number of sources – and continue to be reinterpreted in both literary and artistic mediums. Aesop's fables are accompanied by a series of dazzling illustrations by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham's artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Aesop's masterful storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

Unbelievably rich in history, Aesop's Fables are known the world over for their educational cautionary tales about morality, justice, and truth. Most assume the fables were originally intended for the education of children, but they are rooted in much more complex and sophisticated beginnings. Turns out, "Aesop the fable writer" was a slave from ancient Greece in the 5th century, but since the fables were first passed down orally, no one really knows what fables originated with him from that time, which came later, or which came from another source altogether but were attributed to his name. In any case, to read the fables is to immerse oneself in basic issues of human psychology, relationships, and understanding of the world around us. The notion that this storied tradition began with a 5th century Greek slave, then grew with the contributions of multicultural voices and stories makes it an eternally relevant work.
